Isabel Farnsworth and Shannon Hines at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts
Professors Isabel Farnsworth and Shannon Hines, are in a two-person show at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts through Sunday, July 23, 2017. The show is titled Reveries: Sculpture by Isabel Farnsworth and Shannon Hines and opened on March 31 of this year. An artist talk is scheduled on June 8 at 6:00 p.m. at the gallery which is located at 6300 Fifth Avenue Pittsburgh, PA 15232.
In this sculpture exhibition exploring memory and place, these artists share ideas about what is inside/outside, interior/exterior, above/below physically and metaphorically. Farnsworth’s work inhabits a space between abstraction and representation; utilizing an eclectic mix of materials. These works are meditations on water as a metaphor that speaks about life’s journey, and how its shape shifting nature fills voids and exceed boundaries yet is calming, restorative, and powerful. Hines’ work is more minimal in form and materials, working with primarily fabric, light, color, and texture. In this installation, she symbolically explores childhood memories and notions of comfort.
